The mention of Connecticut summons charming images of seaports and peaceful rural areas, but this densely populated state has its share of landmark crimes. Headline stories chronicled in this book focus on cases solved through the use of forensic science, including the arsenic poisoning of Mary Stannard, the Halloween golf-clubbing of Martha Moxley by a Kennedy relative, and the wood chipper murder of Helle Crafts. Also discussed are the killing spree of Michael Ross, the cold case murder of Yale University student Suzanne Jovin, and the horrifying home-invasion slaying of an upper-class Cheshire family.
